Ninjas from across the state travelled down to the Great Southern to flex their skills in the Albany Indoor Adventures ninja competition last weekend.

Albany’s ‘Tradie Ninja’ Sam Goodall said they had 17 participants from both Perth and Albany compete across two divisions.

“It went well,” he said.

“It was a pretty elite level we were competing at, everyone there had two or three years training at least.

“They were the upper-class ninjas from WA.”

Albany participants scored first and second place across both divisions, taking home cash prizes and ninja training equipment.

In the elite division, Shaun Petter walked away with first place followed by runner up Sam Goodall.

Perth ninja Adam Chatfield came in third.

James Lee took home the gold in the novice division followed by Ryder Coleman in second, while Perth ninja Emma Farrell came in third.

Mr Goodall said next month competitors will “swarm” to Bullsbrook for round four.

“There’s a series that runs around WA called the backyard ninja league so it was one of their rounds,” he said

“But we do a local weekly competition on a Thursday as well that ties in.

“We train for a grand final in Perth in October.”

For those keen to have a go at the sport Mr Goodall said they can “rock up on a Thursday arvo” and join in the A grade or B grade competition.

“The ninja community really is like a family,” he said.
